Medical Education Reform
Since 1997, I have supported people who were at the end-of-life and have heard many accounts of why there must be medical education reform.
Here is an example of a well-informed and compassionate doctor: “Mrs. C, who was suffering from congestive heart failure. All cures had been exhausted and she was tired of being at the hospital but was scared to enter hospice care. The doctor clasped hands with Mrs. C and explained that starting hospice did not mean giving up — it meant living life on her own terms in the time that was left. After these discussions, Mrs. C appeared more at ease and decided to pursue hospice care at her home.”
I’ve had the honor of coaching several medical doctors with compassionate end-of-life care. I teach these healthcare professionals Medical Hypnosis and other mindfulness tools to help them deal with their own stress, anxiety and grief and I teach them other mindfulness tools that they can share to help comfort their patients.
If you or someone you know is nearing the end-of-life and would like to know about the benefits of Integrative Medical Hypnosis and other mindfulness techniques, please give me a call at (760) 219-8079 or send me an email. We can meet online worldwide from your home, hospital, care center, hospice or wherever you may be.
Let’s talk about death and dying
Healthcare professionals are not the only ones uncomfortable talking about death and dying. For many people, conversations about death and dying are avoided, uncomfortable and for some, down-right scary. It didn’t used to be this way.
None of us will leave the earth alive. Just as most of us love to talk about the birth of their children and grandchildren, we should also be comfortable talking about death and dying. If you are ready to become comfortable talking about your death, get in touch with me.
I also invite you to consider attending an online (or in-person) Death Café.
Most months you will find me online at the Coachella Valley Death Café.

“Patients deserve to live their lives with dignity. From our experiences, we understand that suffering may interfere with this and cause patients to lose hope. Medical education must address death and suffering early so that such conversations are normalized amongst medical students by the time that they reach the clinical years. By incorporating more instruction on how to acknowledge distress and suffering in medical school curriculum and by learning directly from patients and families, future physicians will be able to work with patients to find the best balance between quantity and quality of life.”
